A third-generation Thai Chinese , Chuan was born in Trang province in a grass-roofed house. The walls were woven from strips of betel-nut wood. The floor was the earth. His father's name was Niyom Leekpai. His mother's name was Tuan Leekpai. Tuan Leekpai is half-Chinese like other Trang locals. Niyom Leekpai was a teacher, so his salary was trifling. Tuan Leekpai sold Thai dessert and worked in Para rubber garden. Chuan Leekpai has 9 siblings, and he is the third child in the family. Because of his big family, Chuan's life was not comfortable.
